Artist's statement

Naomi Devil is working in the art business since 11 years, she is an artist and designer in constant flux, one can`t really put her into a box. Her hunger for change, new goals, knowledge constantly leads her to new territories of art. It is this restlessness that keeps her creative forces constantly moving to raise new questions and to look for unconventional answers. She thinks the future artist has to go back to the roots of polyhistors like Leonardo da Vinci or Dalí who designed furniture and jewels next to painting. Just like for architects and graphic designers every project should be a new challenge that forces the creator to innovate. The world is developing in an amazing tempo, it is not possible for the future artist to get stuck to one thing, he/she has to be able to go beyond the frames of a canas and be in constant flux to be able to keep up with time. Naomi`s goal is not to become famous with something she invented 10-20 years ago, she wants to become famous for the ability of innovation, rethinking, and surprising people with the new.

Naomi Devil has found her artistic identity and has created her own pool of topics at a very early stage of her carrier. Her artistic production manifests itself between deconstruction and reconstruction, decomposition and composition. She has a relaxed, easy-going and flexible personality and is capable of re-interpretation.
